Nerissa Golden CAS Summit 2022

I’m Speaking at the Authorpreneurship Summit 2022

I am honored to have been invited to speak for the second year at the Authorpreneurship Summit.

This virtual event is the brainchild of author and entrepreneur Cameka “Ruth” Taylor of Jamaica.

I’ll be speaking on Day one in the evening session and you can join me at 7PM EST for the live Q&A with the other evening speakers.

This is a free summit and you really want to get as much of it as possible if you have a dream of writing, whether fiction or non-fiction. The goal of the summit is to create more Caribbean authors and to teach them how to turn their expertise into books they can leverage to build a business.

I will be speaking on how to Start, Grow and Thrive as an Authorpreneur. So you get a taste of what is in my latest book Start, Grow, Thrive: Build a Business to Last.
